I have djd of the cervical spine and bulging disc in the center of my back about 8 inches above my buttocks what kind of exercise can I do to help rel?
Core extention. Most ly extension exercises will give better muscle control to movements without further injury, but the currative process for DJD disease without surgery is prolotherapy. Find a good prolotherapist at www. Getprolo. Com or at www. Aaomed. Org.
Back Pain. Nonsurgical treatment works the vast majority of times for back/neck pain. DJD in the neck and back usually coincide. Same genetics, and your neck and back have been in the same places. . . Mckenzie exercises are what I most often prescribe. You can by the books online: treat your own back, robin mckenzie (around $15). Core exercises also great: pilates, yoga, piyo, etc.
